I have a new Asus a55vd computer with Windows 7.

I noticed something very annoying... while browsing in chrome quite frequently when opening a new page and moving the cursor around at the same time while it's still loading, the stuff gets clicked on ... so that something else opens instead - some further link on the site :(((

I installed new touchpad drivers and disabled most of the gestures on the touchpad (for example touch drag), but it didn't help. Also sometimes when moving cursor around the text on the page gets selected.

How are you moving the cursor around while pages are loading? With your finger or stylus, you're dragging? Because typically touchpad interfaces respond to touching links as clicking them. Doesn't the cursor just move instantly when you touch somewhere? Why would you be dragging it around in the first place? – malfy Feb 3 '14 at 15:07
I'm not doing anything special... just moving cursor in anticipation where I want to click next maybe... not even sure.. I just know that this behaviour is not normal and on my Mac it doesn't happen. Not sure what you mean by "touchpad interfaces respond to touching links as clicking them".. – David Krmpotic Feb 3 '14 at 15:10
On my smartphone, if I touch a link, its going to open regardless of whether I'm dragging or not. Touch a link = click a link. Why are you dragging a cursor around on a touch surface? It should just hop to where ever you touch instantly, no dragging necessary. When you touch a link, its going to open, thats how touchpad software was written. I don't know, but there may be an option to ignore links while dragging... – malfy Feb 3 '14 at 15:49
I'm not dragging.... I just disabled the "touch drag" feature which I thought my be interfering and causing the problem I experience. PS: why you mention smartphone? I have problems on the computer. – David Krmpotic Feb 3 '14 at 16:57
my bad, I was under the impression you were on a tablet. Ok so you've disbaled most of the touch gestures, does the problem remain when you disable all of the gestures? Can you plug in a mouse and see if the problem still occurs? – malfy Feb 3 '14 at 19:19
